Improve them how?: AREDS is a brand/type of multivitamin that's been shown to lower risk of macular degeneration progression. Whether it'll prevent development is still debated. While we need vitamin A for eye health, excess is bad for our health. Think Goldilocks: not too hot/cold.

An economical daily vitamin-and-mineral mix that's not over-heavy on a is a good choice. And enjoying your body ; sexuality is not a health problem. ...Read more
